I have loved cartoons since I can remember and the older I've gotten, the more I have loved creating mashup stories where heroes and cartoon universes collide or interact! The more I get into writing my own books as well, the more I want to write and create stories and fan fiction is an amazing place to do that in!
The way I see these universes connecting is that Metal Knight from One Punch Man finds the hair that Saitama lost from his evolved state and makes a serum that he disseminates into the water. This experiment ends up giving quirks to 80% of the population! All For One comes from a higher dose being given to the first test subject, and All Might is a descendant of that first subject. From a heroic organization to a hero school, it doesn't seem too far a stretch... what was a further stretch would be if down the timeline, we saw Naruto in is the distant future and kakegenkai end up being quirks passed down through families... but that's a whole other conversation!
The original Ben 10 has the same feel as many of the cartoons I watched as a kid during the age of Saturday morning Cartoons. There's innocence, adventure, fun, and it doesn't take itself too seriously. The characters are all very distinct and the designs are fun to see when they pop up. Whats really fun is seeing which alien comes from the mix when Ben wants to jump into the fray. He's a 10 year old kid so we don't expect much from this young kid but he has a great supporting cast in his Grandpa and cousin Gwen that help him grow and be a better person. If you want a good new show to watch and haven't seen this one yet, I highly recommend watching the original series of Ben 10!
In trying to celebrate the debut of the sequel to one of my favorite movies, I wanted to draw some fun and family love in my depiction of the Incredibles! I have my own book series that shares this theme so I want to try and infuse some of that into my fanart as well! I hope you enjoy this!
